{New Post} Coping with the Trauma of Chronic Illness-
“Trauma permanently changes us.” Trauma comes in many forms… but one form many of you can relate to is the trauma of a chronic illness. I often explain to others that those struggling with chronic disease are stuck in a never ending cycle of grief. With each new symptom, set-back, medication, or new diagnosis we begin the cycle over again. Mentally, it can be very exhausting, not only on us, but on our families. To cope, here are some things that have helped me.

Thanks for sharing! 3832401114000 Out of everything I cook and bake, gluten-free bread recipes are always my favorite recipes to create. They are challenging and cause me to think outside of the box. Most often, they frustrate me to no end, but the perfectionist in me always has to work at something until I get... Read More »

These are so cute! I have not seen that icing here in our stores in Alaska! 
What is it about the month of February and Valentine's Day that always seems to sneak up on me? Maybe it's the too short break after all of the holidays before that gives me just enough time to pause and take a breath, then s...

Looking for a totally legit gluten-free pizza crust recipe to wow your family?! Try my Best Gluten-Free Pizza Crust. It's not a thin crust, but it's not a super thick one either. It's just thick enough to stand up to a mountain-load of toppings. So pile it high! This recipe also doubles beautifully (I made 2 pizzas for dinner last night). It's gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, refined sugar-free... and super delicious! #glutenfree #dairyfree #pizza #pizzacrust #recipes #wheatfree

Thanks for sharing! 302903910 Pizza is one of those timeless classics that never loses popularity. It can be personalized according to individual preference, and thankfully, allergies. Just because you’re gluten and/or dairy free doesn’t mean you still can’t sink your teeth into a delicious slice of pizza. I developed this Best Gluten-Free Pizza Crust out of... Read More »

Gluten Free Honey Graham Crackers that are free from nearly everything: dairy-free, corn-free, egg-free, nut-free, xanthan/guar gum-free, soy free, rice-free, etc. ;) These babies make ahhh-mazing s'mores! They taste slightly toasted, sweet, and light and crunchy. Happy summer! #glutenfree   #smores   #nutfree   #dairyfree   #eggfree   #wheatfree   #celiac

These are just SO cute!! And LOL at the rollerblading story! Reminds me of my husband and I when we were dating... we went rollerblading and he was totally trying to impress me. He tried to do a fancy jump and landed flat on his back. I remember him sprawled out on the pavement - we both couldn't stop laughing! Good stuff!

Thanks for sharing! 15023082580 Every Easter our church puts on a really nice brunch for the congregation. The couple that organizes it understands what it means to be gluten-free, and takes extra consideration when it comes to me and my gluten-free, dairy-free girls. Which is so amazing!! It is such a treat to have safe food at... Read More »

I'm super excited to share this recipe with you guys! Sausage Stuffed Mini Peppers with Kale - these are favorites around here and get gobbled up every time I make them. It's the perfect appetizer to add to your holiday menu (your friends will beg you for the recipe!). ;) Flavorful sausage mixed with shallots, mushrooms and kale, then baked into sweet mini peppers. Bet you can't eat just one! ‪#‎glutenfree‬ ‪#‎paleo‬
